The best in house, techno, grime, soul and bass music will play across multiple indoor and outdoor venues in the city’s Baltic Triangle area, marking the final weekend of the academic year.
Highlights from this initial announcement include Glaswegian party starter Denis Sulta, producer powerhouse Daniel Avery, Metalheadz mainstay Benny L and a rare back to back between Ben UFO and Joy Orbison.
As well as DJ sets from Nightmares On Wax and garage favourite Jossy Mitsu, Baltic Weekender attendees can catch live performances from psychedelic soul songstress Greentea Peng and the House Gospel Choir, who have been praised for their live fusion of the biggest house and gospel tracks.
Sicaria Sound will be serving old-skool-inspired dubstep with grime, whilst composer and sound artist Yu Su debuts following a standout Ninja Tune release last summer.
They all play alongside some of the North West’s leading local talent including Meine Nacht founder Breakwave, Sisbis head honcho Giovanna and NTS Manchester resident Sofie K.
The line-up strongly reflects the musical ethos of the 24 Kitchen Street and Abandon Silence teams, who founded the weekender.
Co-founder Andrew Hill said: “We’re really excited to reveal our biggest line up to date, bringing some of the leading names across all musical genres to the city as we kick off the festival season. We’re always focused on bringing emerging and established talent to the city, showcasing live acts and DJs in Liverpool’s most loved venues. Now more than ever, we want to celebrate the continued diversity of our music culture, whilst seeking to preserve its future.”
It’s a triumphant unveiling as 24 Kitchen Street bounces back from closure threats following the announcement of new planning proposals and a valiant response from the local music community.
